Born to Perform. After shooting top selling Billboard artist, author, reality star Erika Jayne for our 9 ½ Weeks, 1980's film-themed spread shot by legendary photographer Mick Rock and styled by award winning costume designer Mona May for Story + Rain, we sat down to discuss the reality of reality, how performing and creating has always been in her blood, Erika Jayne vs Erika Girardi, marriage, motherhood, her favorite products, and more. This is an intimate conversation that looks at the woman behind the costumes and cameras.
“Identity, true identity, comes from experience, life experience. The good times and the bad times make who you are, and that makes a brand, and people are able to identify with it. Whether you're funny, or genuine—build it, and they will come.” - Erika Jayne
"I love costumes, because they tell a story. They are the character. It's how you communicate. You're communicating everyday with your wardrobe whether you know it or not." - Erika Jayne
